4 Tips For Layering Art on Consoles

Cohesive Frames

When creating any sort of gallery wall or set, having matching frames is the easiest way to make the art match. For a modern take, use a thin black or white frame. For a more traditional or vintage look, frame your art prints with a maple or grey wood frame.

Colour Palette

Keeping a simple colour palette is important when styling prints. Try to stick to either a warm colour palette (yellows, oranges, red and browns) or a cool colour palette (blues, greens, purples and greys) for your artwork.

Theme

Another option for choosing art prints to style together is choosing a theme. This can be as broad as portraits or landscapes, or more specific like yellow florals. When styled together even if the prints’ frames and artists aren’t the same, the prints seem to belong together.

Matching Art Sets

For an easy and modern way to create a layered art look on a console, stick to a set of matching art prints. Some popular options for this look include vintage prints, abstracts and figures. Matisse and Van Gogh vintage sets have become a trendy option for minimalists, adding some colour and texture to a simple space.

5 Types of Artwork for a Guest Room

Landscapes

A spare bedroom should be a soothing comfortable space for any visitor. Having a beautiful abstract landscape painting is a great place to start. Keep the colour palette blues or neutrals for a calming effect. Coastal paintings are a perfect easy option for a spare room.

Photography

Another option is black and white photography. If your looking to design a more modern or minimalist room, add a dramatic framed black and white photograph. To keep the photography from visually weighing down your wall, try to keep the rest of the furnishings white, and maybe have some pops of grey or black accessories to match.

Floral

These framed pieces don’t have to look like your grandmother chose them for you. Add a modern abstract or line art floral to your space for a spin on a traditional guest bedroom artwork. Since these pieces tend to be detailed, stick to a simple clean frame so that the focus stays on the artwork.

Still Life

Modern still lives are incredible trendy right now in interior design. These elegant pieces usually feature a pot or vase and or some fruit. Line art or simple shapes take these old fashioned concepts into 21st century homes. I recommend buying a set, and placing them above either the bed or a side console in the room.

Neutral Abstracts

For those of you with a more Scandinavian inspired home, use a simple framed neutral abstract for your spare room. To create a peaceful Nordic space, use a thin black or neutral frame and keep the furnishings simple. Add some textured blankets and pillows on the bed to get that hygge feeling.
